Earthlite Harmony DX Portable Massage Table Review
Ah, Earthlite. Being the best massage table brand as some would say, it has produced some of the world’s best massage equipment for massage therapists since 1987.
Amongst all, its all-in-one Harmony DX Portable Massage Table is its bestselling product, being one of the best portable massage table the market has to offer to date.
What We Like
What We Don't
Structure & Construction
When it comes to an Earthlite product, one cannot not mention its material and quality.
Why so? Because not only does it use some of the best quality components in its construction, it does so sustainably.
Supporting organizations like Trees for the Future and Sustainable Harvest International as part of their Net-Zero Carbon footprint initiatives, Earthlite uses no rainforest hardwoods or wood from old growth forests (you can read more about the brand and its practice here).
Rather, the Harmony DX has its frame and legs made of hard maple wood that is sustainably sourced.
Designed for years of professional use, its non-slip hardwood legs, ergonomic knobs, full length piano hinge for strength and attractive dual maple outlets are all features contributing to its exceptional quality and durability.
The non-slip feature means there is no need to worry about the table sliding around during massage sessions, while the sure-grip knobs make it easy to adjust the table's height.
The Harmony DX uses a 2.5" soft dual density cushion to ensure it wouldn't bottom out. That's an extra 0.5" thicker than the usual standards. For its upholstery, the Natursoft fabric is durable yet soft and supple to the touch.
It’s not just about the material that is being used - the installation work is top-notch too. Dual maple outlets are installed for further security and all knots and cables are fitted well to be tightened/unwinded with ease.
There are no squeaks or creaks when you fold or unfold the table, although there may be a squeak here and there if too much weight is put onto it. This is pretty much unavoidable though, at the end of the day, this is a wooden massage table.
Speaking of weight, the maximum capacity of the table is 600lbs. Considered pretty significant, given the average working weight of portable massage tables lies within the 500 lbs mark.
Compared to other portable massage tables, the Earthlite Harmony DX has considerably lesser accessories.
This one here comes with the usual massage table headrest + massage table carry case standard combination, although the former is famous for its comfort.
Patented, the Deluxe Adjustable Facecradle cushion is filled with a proprietary Cloudfill poly-gel blend that provides 10x more the comfort compared to other standard ones.
It can be adjusted from a perfect horizontal position to a vertical one to give your clients the best comfortable position and to date, this is the only face cradle in the market that is able to do so.
For its massage table bag, it is pretty standard using rugged nylon for durability use. Just fold the table and fit it inside the bag for portability.
In particular, its sheet sets and massage table heating pad are well-loved by professional masseuses across the world because of their excellent quality and reasonable pricing. You may want to check them out here.

Things to Note
One thing with the Harmony DX is that it is 2" wider than the standard width of 28". For those looking for a wide massage table, this will be a good choice to consider.
By itself, it may not be that substantial given the table weighs 33 pounds only but if you are to include everything packed into the nylon carry case, the total weight is around 38 pounds.
The Earthlite Harmony DX Portable Massage Table may not be the cheapest (price-wise) of all, however, if you are looking for a wooden massage table that stands the use of time, this is the one to go for.
Made by one of the world's most trusted brand in the massage industry, the quality of this portable massage table is really second to none so you can be sure it lasts through years of durable use.
After all, no one likes to keep having to buy a new table every 6 months or so, isn't it?
[If you're interested and have a slightly bigger budget, there is a premium version available (made in the USA) that is worth checking out.]
